Book Review 145 // Attack of the Necron by Cavan Scott


Bit of a strange book this week, I've been noticing my oldest taking more and more interest in my hobbies, and though still too young for most aspects of the games I am trying to prepare to introduce her to 40k. So with this in mind, I purchased Attack of Necron, a children-friendly book set within the world of 40k. This is an easy read and comes with pictures!

Title: Attack of the Necron (Warped Galaxies #1)
Author: Cavan Scott
Illustrator: Cole Marchetti/ Magnus Noren
Fluff:
Brave champions and the forces of the Imperium battle alien beasts and mechanical tyrants across the gulf of space.

On the hive world of Targian, Zelia Lor helps her mother search for ancient tech, digging up treasures of the past on the wind-blown plains. They are happy. They are safe. All that changes when the Necrons attack. Without warning, a host of robotic ships appear in the skies above Targian and rip the planet apart. Separated from her mother, Zelia must escape the doomed world, her only hope a scrambled transmission promising safety at a mysterious place known only as the Emperor’s Seat. Launched in an escape pod, she crashes on an icy wasteland far, far from home. But Zelia is not alone. She is joined by a rag-tag group of survivors – the street-tough Juve Talen, gadget-obsessed Martian boy Mekki and super-intelligent alien-ape, Fleapit.

Type: Paperback
Page Count: 212 pages

The story follows Zelia as she is forced to flee off-world after her mum's research team sets off an awakening of Necrons. As she flees the planet she is joined by her mum's assistant Mekki and youth from Mars, and Talen, a street rough and ready Juve who helps them escape the planet. Into this mix throw in some Space Marines, Necrons and the tech-savvy Fleapit.

The story moves fast, which is unsurprising considering it's a kid's book. It is also extremely easy to read and at 200 pages with drawings, it all goes by quick. I could complain that it is too short, the characters deserved more development, but it's a fucking kids book, it doesn't need that. But the action is exciting, the characters unique and overall a fun little read.

Having now completed it, I know I am happy to share this with the young one, and will be buying the follow-up books soon.

I hope you enjoyed the review and will grab a copy yourself. As always, I thank you for reading. I hope you will take a moment to use one of the links, and help support the blog. Thank you.
